Which lighting do you like best?

While sewing burp cloth and bibs I let the other machine stitch out FSL. A friend of mine loves fairies and I thought this would be a fun gift. I used an old cleaned out candle jar and glued the design to the inside glass.

Since it was only changing the lighting inside the jar I am giving my friend both and she can decide. I liked the bottom one the best. Reminded me of fireflies

Well, Love this idea and I think the second photo would be what I would choose...I agree it looks like fireflies...So is the snowy pattern on the glass or ??? Most candles I have seen have just a clear glass...don't think I have ever seen one with a textured image...

I had treated the glass with glue spray and then sprinkled this snow material on it. Later I took a brush and brushed off any excess. If I was to do it again I think I would treat the glass with etching material.

The second one. Looks like she is sitting among the fireflies after dusk.

That was my feeling as well, but after reading jrob's remark I looked at it differently

What a fantastic recycling job. I love the lighting on the 1st one best. Your little fairy appears to be conjuring up magic over a bonfire.

Love the gift! I like the lighter colour, the orangey one looks a bit spooky to me.
